Brighton Area Christmas Tree Farms
Christmas is right around the corner, and if you're settling into your new Brighton home, one thing is for sure – a new home deserves a great Christmas tree. Sure, you could dust off that bold artificial tree that you've been stowing away for years, but why do that when there are so many great places to cut your own real tree?

A Christmas tree is a classic family holiday tradition, and it's not just about hanging up tinsel and lights. For many families, the experience of heading out to pick out and cut your own tree is still very much a treasured annual event. If you're on the hunt for the perfect Christmas Tree in the Brighton, MI area, our REALTORS® are here to share some of their favorite local spots where you can cut your own.

  1. Waldock Tree Farm - 3090 Dutcher Rd, Howell, MI
    For many, the Christmas tree of choice is the fir tree, and Waldock Tree Farm offers four distinct varieties: Canaan Fir, Concolor Fir, Fraser Fir, and Korean Fir (and for all you Blue Spruce devotees, they have a few of those, too). Waldock Tree Farm also has a knowledgeable staff who can help you pick out the perfect tree for your house. Plus, they serve some great donuts, coffee, tea, and hot cocoa!
